Acura - '09 TSX

I got a chance to try this car out. It's a great car. If you're a sports-car junkie, this probably isn't for you - it only has 201 HP. But, if you want a nice car that's fun to drive, looks cool and has a load of features, the TSX fits the bill quite nicely. It has a newly designed exterior with a large, shark-like air-intake grill on the front. It comes standard with some great things: Integrated Bluetooth; Xeon HID Lights; Voice commands; even an USB/iPod connecter so you can play your iPod music over the car's stereo. If you get the Tech package, you get an easy to use but comprehensive GPS screen, Rear backup camera, XM radio and an awesome sound system. It even has a feature to track the position of the sun and change the air conditioner appropriately while in auto mode. The driving isn't connected to the pavement 100%, but it's pretty good. It's a front-wheel drive, meaning you do feel the steering. This also provides you with great traction in rain and snow. It's a peppy little car that's fun to drive without being too difficult. The only drawback is its slightly cramped size. Very tall people may have to bend a bit to get in. If the driver puts his seat back, it quickly starts to eliminate backseat leg-room. But the small size also makes it that much greener - getting 21 City and 30 Hwy MPG. I've heard this can go up a bit if you drive better and use cruise control. Cool car.
